Subject: really good
Ditto's to the kudos below. Needs a better title tho; it no way reflects the excellent book.

Subject: Excitement, adventure, and really wild things
Vivid, emotional, and compelling account of Canadian and British prisoners and how they endure (and try to escape from) German POW camps during World War I.

Well written. And well read by various LibriVox volunteers.
